another litte item here - http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2006/05/18/national/w115635D85.DTL - about how apes and bonobos know how to "plan ahead". i always love the stories that point out how remarkable other animals are without the slightest sense of 'oh, by the way, we're animals too'
